assistance to be rendered, at what point did he give that order. why did no one show up. general dempsey says the military respond appropriately. i will ask them what is an inappropriate response. the system failed. but the person i blame the most for benghazi is president obama. it's his foreign policy strategy that aloud this conflict to become a death trap. he's the one to share the blame above all others. martha: senator mccain poibtsd out the last two seals were killed in the final hour of a 7-hour siege. it makes the argument you can't respond to the second 911 call and they can't get there in time a little more complicated, doesn't it? >> it it's a system failure. when general dempsey says the d.o.d. responded appropriately. i think not. not one d.o.d. asset reached these people for over 7 hours. i just find it dumbfounding to believe that we could not provide any military assistance on 9/11 of all days. and given the history of the threat. reports out of libya and the terror situation. this is a system failure. no one is pressing the president. the mainstream media is giving the obama

, with martin dempsey, and john brennan, you were talking a lot about drones. there's been a lot of talk about the americans using drones against people linked to al qaeda. american citizens. you look at a case like this, and dorner, is this a case where you would think some time soon that we would use drones against american citizens, a case like this, where he's trying to kill people? >> no, i don't think so. and i don't think we'll ever get there. and i think it's very, very important to understand that the legal justification for using an air strike against an enemy combatant, no matter what their citizenship is, is longstanding in this country. and world war ii is the best example, where somebody would join forces with the enemy to fight the united states. they no longer have the benefit of the u.s. citizenship to protect them when they're an enemy combatant on foreign land, fighting the battle of the united states. so he was belligerent. in the al awlaki case, he's a belligerent to the united states. that's very different than having a united states citizen in the united states. they hav

that was interesting i thought from the panetta testimony is when general dempsey, he testified with leon panetta chairman of the joint chiefs and he said he was surprised when he was pressed that hillary clinton didn't read that all important august 15th cable, right, where chris stevens said, we aren't going to be able to repel and attack in benghazi with what we have. and he was pressed on that. are you surprised she didn't see he it, well, yeah, i was surprised. it looked like there was buck passing from panetta and dempsey to the state department because they said people are wondering why we didn't have armed aircraft in the vicinity, well, we didn't have enough time, and essentially saying the state department didn't request it. so, it all seems like, you know, fingers are pointing in the other direction. >> bill: here is what i think. >> i didn't learn that much. >> bill: here is what i think happened so i don't want to do this anymore because nothing's going to happen. all right, nobody's going to be disciplined. nobody's going to be scolded or did anything. the ambassador over there, chr

hill along with general dempsey, joint chief of staff. there are live shots of the hearing on going. secretary panetta who is right next to him says the military pre pictures for all kinds of situations but there were no specific signs of an imminent aeu that being on the diplomatic mission in libya. he says there simply was not enough time to reach benghazi with enough fire power to prevent the murders of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. >> the inner agency response was timely and appropriate, but there simply was not enough time, given the speed of the attacks for armed u.s. military assets to have made a difference. jenna: national skhaourt correspondent jennifer given is live at the pentagon watching the hearing as it happens. what is the tenure of the hearing this morning? >> reporter: i think what is most interesting, jenna is as soon as democrats take to the questioning they bring up a totally unrelated element, they start asking the secretary about sequestration, about budget cuts. when the republicans are at the helm you have senator lindsey graham right

. what question would you ask leon panetta today and martin dempsey if you had a chance to? >> i don't think there's a big conspiracy. we didn't do what we could have. the military did not do something, they didn't fire whatever. my question would be why was there no plan? it's like if you close down your fire department and somebody calls and says my house is on fire. it would take awhile to get everybody back in there and get the fire trucks moving. on the other hand, if you had the fire department standing by, which is what we should have -- standing by -- we could have reacted. >>brian: when this book is written, you take your real life and connections and put them into novel concepts so they come out looking like real stories, one of which was syria. you put a call in to your friends and said what is going on there, i'm going to go research this. what happened? >> i try to be as current as i can. i want current events to be as realistic as i can be. current events are current, and i have a buddy of mine who is much smarter than i am on this type of stuff. i was heading over ther

and lars what we're hearing from general dempsey, it wasn't that they couldn't do it, it was they didn't get the request. >> that's right. and this is something that's significant, this isn't, marjorie, about blaming one person, it's saying there was a colassel failure at all levels. the president gets a briefing at five o'clock, he's told the attack is underway he then leaves the white house. he's absent. the military never gets a request from the state department. and the state department has a secretary of state, hillary clinton, who says she never saw the cables coming from her own ambassador, chris stevens, who cabled the state department to say, we're in trouble, not that night, but previous to that. plenty of warning ahead of time. there had been other attacks in the region, in that country. and the state department ignored it and not even bringing it to the secretary's attention. so, hillary clinton is out of touch and out of hand. >> i mean, it is hard, i think, for most people to believe, marjorie, that the president and the secretary of state were not constantly back and for

'll talk about it. he showed up with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, martin dempsey. finally you had a bunch of senators who wanted answers to their questions and therefore you had something you could really benefit from, if you were one of the many americans interested in getting to the truth about 9/11/2012. >>steve: we have heard stories about how navy seals and people in benghazi were calling for help. we heard about people on the roof painting where the target was going to be. why couldn't they send an aircraft? apparently there were ready aircraft 90 minutes away. leon panetta said we did the right thing. it would have taken somewhere between 9 and 12 hours to get an armed aircraft there. here he is. >> there was no specific intelligence or indications of an imminent attack on that -- the u.s. facilities in benghazi. and, frankly, without an adequate warning, there was not enough time given the speed of the attack for armed military assets to respond. >> once an attack takes place, the biggest problem you have is getting accurate information about exactly what is taking pla

defense secretary leon panetta and general martin dempsey will testify at a senate hearing on the deadly u.s. consulate attack in benghazi and libya. secretary of state hillary clinton appeared before the senate armed services committee last month. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the attack september 11th. >>> the boy scouts say they need more time, put off potentially historic vote yesterday on lifting the national ban on gay members. the organization will take this up during their annual meeting in may. >>> tim geithner is shopping for a publisher. the former treasury secretary is planning to write a book, of course is he, about his handling of the 2008 financial crisis. geithner came under fire for the bailout of the big banks when he was head of the new york fed. he's hoping to have the book done by next year. >> that's interesting, too, to hear a public announcement. i'm shopping for a publisher. >>> let's take you back to the national prayer breakfast, it's the 61st annual, we're still waiting for president obama to get up and speak, chuck schumer is

if they wanted to extend the special security team there and was told no. >> your responses, general dempsey, are very inadequate and, in my opinion, the same kind of inadequacy for the security that you provided at that consulate. >> in the end, the questioning came back to the president, what he knew and when. >> did you ever call him and say, mr. president, it looks like we don't have anything to get there any time soon? >> i -- the event was over before -- >> it lasted almost eight hours. >> wow. you know, the marines did not have a guard unit obviously at the guard mission in benghazi but that could be changing. secretary panetta stated that more training and equipment could be coming to those guard units and also an expanded mission beyond their core priority of protecting classified materials at these compounds. >> yeah. they've got to learn the lessons from what happened in benghazi to make sure it never happens again. chris lawrence, thanks very much. >>> violent protests are once again raging in the same place that the so-called arab spring was born. lisa sylvester is monitoring th
